I've been using Downcast for years, but was growing a bit bored by the interface. After a few days with this app, I'm going back. Seems like it can't handle streaming at all, and every time I mark something for downloading then return later to listen, it hasn't actually dowloaded. Plus, there's no "resume were you left off" or "now playing" option. Everyone seems to love this, so maybe I am missing slime thing, but I'm on the verge of deleting.

Love It!
Bought this app to replace Apple's miserable excuse for a podcast app, and I LOVE this. It works perfectly on both my T-Mobile iPhone 5 and 3rd gen retina iPad. My podcasts stay synced between them (unlike Apple's app). I'm an avid podcast listener, and this is now my favorite app!

Very good
I've tried the official app and Downcast and not really liked either, but this one works just right. The interface is very nice and the cross-platform syncing is almost flawless, and I'm using the iPhone, iPad and OS X versions. Highly recommended. Only annoyance is the implementation of the scrub bar when combined with the swipeable controls. This is frustrating more often than not. However, it's a relatively small problem in an otherwise very well thought-out, cross-platform podcast manager.

Please fix video scrubbing!
It's really difficult to move back or forth in a video podcast using the scrub bar because it slides the entire UI over to the extra settings menu. Move the scrub bar to another location or make the scrub knob much larger so you can touch it without dragging the entire UI...Very annoying! Please fix!

Buggy - Downcast is Nicer
This could be a nice app but many podcasts download more than once, support is nil (the developer frequently doesn't respond) and there is very limited playlist support in the app compared with Downcast, which I prefer. Instacast downloading is fast but with the double downloads not accurate.

Really great!
Fricken Beast! IMO this is the best podcast app/pod catcher.
